Dr. Mahendru recently attended a medical symposium to discuss the enhancement of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) treatments. MSC’s are unique cells because they are not specialized for one particular purpose.

Facet blocking is a treatment created to provide targeted relief for those suffering from debilitating back pain. Spinal facet joints are the small spaces located between the vertebrae of your spine. These articular processes act as stabilizing joints, allowing you to rotate, bend and move. In short, spinal facet joints provide your spine the strength and stability you need to function on a daily basis.
